Referral Form

Use this service to submit your interest in receiving short-term counselling or mentoring from YPI Counselling. This service is primarily available to young people within the Basingstoke and Deane area.

YPI Counselling is not a Crisis service and a waiting list system is in place. We see all clients in order by the date of when a referral is received.

We offer short-term counselling which may not be safe or effective if you have a severe mental health condition such as PTSD, an eating disorder, or personality disorder. We recommend talking to your GP about a referral to CAMHS or mental health services.
